Is it just me, or is S-Strain getting really popular now?
I mean, for the first couple of weeks since it’s first aired, almost no one talked about it. Now, I see more and more people talking about it; hell, I’ve been watching the raws already (the only other show I do that with is Kanon).
Perhaps it’s now “in” to talk about what isn’t talked about? Or maybe the series truly deserves all the spotlight. While not really making a completely new genre or something, it does quite a few things we don’t normally see on shows. Firstly, sub-characters get killed, and they get killed fast. Hell, in the first episode, Sara’s 3 friends, including one guy who is in love with her (albeit only one-sided), get killed in like, less than a minute. Not only that, the excessive fanservice, possibly more than Gundam, gets a litle grating. I guess it’s only normal though, since they pilot StrAIns in super tight suits.
okay, I’m just blabbering on about random stuff so I’ll shut up now :V
oh, and I found this interesting:
Oddly enough, Isabella and Mary from the first episode were both voiced by Tanaka Rie and both are already dead.
Thanks to Omni for pointing it out.
